Recording ‘Was not brought” for missed appointments/ meetings

Many children and adults are reliant on someone else to take them to meetings or appointments that relate to their welfare, care or health and as a result they are sometimes not taken to them. This may mean that a practitioner may record them as having ‘not attended’.

The Leeds Safeguarding Children Partnership, Safer Leeds and Leeds Safeguarding Adults Board see this as a concern and are asking all Leeds practitioners to use “Was Not Brought” rather than “Did Not Attend” for recording or noting the non-attendance of children, young people and adults who are reliant on someone else to take them to a meeting or appointment.

See the web page for further information and to find out what actions you should take.
